We are proud to share our experience with the popular TV show, Shark Tank. Earlier in the summer, EarlyBirdy was selected to pitch to the producers of Shark Tank. This required sending a personal video describing our story and vision. Roughly 40,000 individuals/companies apply every year to earn a spot in the most watched entrepreneurial competition in America. Unfortunately, only 1,000 make it the video submission round.
This means that EarlyBirdy was among the top 2.5% of applicants! Even though we did not advance further, we are still excited to have started off our journey on such a great and affirming note.
And of course, this is not to say that we will not try again in the next year or two. After all, a huge chunk of Shark Tank participants are re-applicants themselves.
While the Shark Tank experience was short for us, it was definitely a sweet one!
